Sen. Richard Lugar, who lost his primary fight in Indiana Tuesday, doesn’t need any reminders of the tea party movement’s ongoing appeal. But for those who do, another one surfaced recently in the tax return of the tea party movement’s biggest umbrella organization.
The Woodstock, Ga.-based Tea Party Patriots reported raising $12.2 million for the year ended May 31, 2011. That vaults them into the ranks of some of the most successful conservative activist groups, including FreedomWorks, the Club for Growth and Americans for Tax Reform.
Here we go again! Yet, ANOTHER alleged Kennedy abuse of women.
According to a New York Daily News article (to read click here) Douglas Kennedy, the son of Robert and Ethel Kennedy, twisted the arm of one nurse and kicked another in the pelvic area when they tried to prevent him from leaving the hospital with his newborn child to take a walk. The story says the nurses have retained a person injury attorney and have informed Kennedy’s attorney that they intend to sue. Kennedy was charged with child endangerment by the police.
While he is the father of the child, why did he not get the proper approval to take the child out of the hospital? Who the heck takes their newborn infant son out for a walk (on a New York January day) before he has been discharged from the hospital? This is one weird story.
Just a little aside here, but why is it that every Kennedy story always has a reference to “CAMELOT?” I am almost as sick of that word as I am of the relentless Kennedy family news stories.
Surveillance video shows Douglas Kennedy carrying his newborn as nurse tries to stop him at hospital in Westchester County.
Lee Morcus, the owner of the Jackalope Ranch, whose own Chef Maria and team were the winners of the 2011 International Indio Tamale Contest (Chef Pete posted about that here), confirms the existence of the mysterious and mischievous jackalopes. These horned rabbit-like creatures cause many problems at the Jackalope Ranch for the guests, employees, and delivery trucks. Check out the video and hear Lee’s story and incredible pictures.

Shortly before leaving the governor's office in Massachusetts, Mitt Romney's administration spent nearly $100,000 of state money to purge computer and email records in an unprecedented attempt to wipe out the paper trail of his tenure. His staff took home hard drives from state-owned computers and erased emails and other communications from state servers, complicating current efforts to retrieve and review the records of Romney's four-year term that ended in 2007.
